Similarly, in a multiplex in Gwalior, workers from a Hindu organisation barged into a multiplex to stop the screening of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. 

The tension related to this film is centered around Fawad Khan's role, which is now rumoured to be heavily chopped so as to not rake up further controversy and trouble.

Post-Uri attacks, multiple political outfits have protested against having any Pakistani artiste work in India until bilateral tension is under control.
